Single photons interference building up

A movie showing how interference fringes build up with a genuine source of single photons (for more information, see http://www.physique.ens-cachan.fr/old/franges_photon/index.htm courtesy Jean-François Roch), and the corresponding Quantum Optics calcualtions as presented in chapter 5 of Introduction to Quantum Optics
